It was claimed on the radio that having been here around 2000 years, they are part of the ecosystem now and there loss would upset the natural balance.Erm, aren't bunnies a non native invasive species brought over by the Romans? Shouldn't we be seeking to restore the natural order by eradicating them?

Doesn't that make farmers part of the ecosystem?!
Yep loads of rabbits here too. They were on about some app they've developed to record numbers of the more common "British" wildlife to get a better idea of numbers. Thought perhaps I'd better download it to keep a balanced picture - I could report many multiple sitings per day.The story was on the BBC breakfast news yesterday, they interviewed some environmentalist who said 95% of the rabbits on one heath had died and the heathland had been lost with it....... I had to chuckle because, if the hemorrhagic virus wiped them out, it would have been very quick, so how the hell would heathland have been lost in such a short time,
These people are bonkers! The other person they interviewed was equally bonkers, even the interviewer gave the impression he thought they were bonkers too
Loads of rabbits here, even after the virus cane through last summer
Had to laugh... Read the article in that link, as i eas scrolling down there was an advert for rifle night sights
